Nationally acclaimed evangelist John Luther is the last obstacle in the way of sweeping religious reform in the States. When a U.S. Senator and Luther's own supporters abduct and frame him in the murder of an innocent teenage girl, an unprecedented era of persecution is unleashed. Out on personal recognizance, Luther escapes police surveillance in search of the truth. And suddenly a once-normal life is targeted by a team of ex-military operatives who wage a relentless campaign to eliminate the incriminating evidence. As evangelist turned fugitive, Luther vows to expose anyone involved with, or profiting from, the girl's murder. It's a mission that brings him face-to-face with the coming storm of persecution that will threaten the entire American Christian community. Written by Daniel Lusko

Ignore the low votes, the movie is much better than them.
21 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

After seeing the low rating for Persecuted I didn't have much hope for the movie. Now that I've seen it, I'd say most of the low votes are from people who didn't watch it and/or are politically motivated to give low scores/poor reviews to any Christian themed movie or any movie that portrays the direction of the country in a negative light.

Without giving anything away, I will say I found myself thinking midway through the movie that 10 years or so ago you would have had to have been some type of conspiracy nut to take this seriously. Today as our Presidents follow the law less and less, various federal agencies are arming themselves to the teeth and the NSA spying on everyone domestic and foreign, it doesn't seem nearly as far fetched.
